BECOME: A Live Exercise: CS

Wow, this tape did something to me. Live 2012 recording of Santa Barbara’s Become on a radio show, which just lends a extra layer of ambiance to the Hüsker Dü x Rites Of Spring x Clairmel vibe. The banter is also excellent and really reminds you of what smart asses we punks are. I miss college radio, I miss live shows, I miss hearing bands like this play as hard as they can and then fucking make jokes about “the internet” afterwards. This is the kind of hardcore that makes you want to throw your arms around everyone and thank fuck to be reminded that nothing really matters besides letting music shake every one of your organs. A live exercise, indeed. –Theresa W. (Extinction Burst)
